Description

Awesome trail going one way counter clockwise using Brooks Creek Trail on the way down during the pandemic of 2020. The trail begins with gradual switch backs through Eucalyptus with some good views of Linda Mar beach along the way. Opens up into chaparral as you reach the ridge. Brooks Creek Trail looks out over the lush canyon and spring waterfall on the other side of the canyon. Lots of wildflowers in spring.

This is the beginning of the trail. In the distance you can see a sign displaying the name of the campsite to the right(campsite not shown in photo). Beyond this sign there is another telling the history of the Old Trout Farm.
